    The only salad I've ever liked happened to be one I had in Paris. This one, has me interested again..I'll make one, too.

    What types of blossoms are those? The 2 middle ones are fantastic.

    That's interesting, the first salad that really got me "into" salads was one I had in Belgium in 96'. I wish I could remember the exact ingredients now.. something to do with warm turkey and walnuts. :)

    I'm not sure what kind of blossoms they are. I moved here in November so this is the first time I've seen that plant bloom.

    Why am I sensing an extreme amount of sarcasm? ;)

    The sarcasm meter goes off the scale at mention of the cat, but other than that...These really are good ingredients for a great day :)

    I guess I should clarify that they are the ingredients for a good day for me, one of the few I've had recently. But if they work for someone else too then great. :)

    good day for you = good day for me

    Our neighbor and friend above us has an even better view because she can see over the bushes and the house in front of us (to the right). But still, I'm pretty happy with what we have. :)

    Mmmm.... that salad look goo..oo..oo..oo..oo..ood! Roma tomatoes... trying to think what type they are. The organic greengrocers near us just had some of the most amazing tomatoes, no, the most amazing tomatoes I have ever tasted, from Sicily. They looked like little red pumpkins, and tasted almost as sweet as plums, and were good and firm so they didn't slush up and run away all over the chopping board when you chop them. I made myself a big plate, about a pound of tomatoes, all sliced in half, drizzled in olive oil and covered in salt and pepper. It was so gorgeous I had to go back and have another one... managed to work my way through the entire huge bag of tomatoes I'd just bought.

    The blossoms look beautiful too. Nice photos!

    Roma tomatoes are also known as plum tomatoes.. because they're um, shaped like a plum. :)I love perfectly ripe tomatoes, especially cherry tomatoes. When we used to have a garden we would pick leaves off our basil plant, wrap them around ripe cherry tomatoes and then pop them in our mouths. It tasted incredible. I've never heard of the kind you mentioned, they sound tasty.

    Thanks, I only wore it to take the photos. I wanted something with an interesting pattern and all my clothes seemed so boring. The dress doesn't even fit me. :)
